* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

According to a survey by the Public Religion Research Institute
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/26/millennials-gay-unaffiliated-church-religion_n_4856094.html
Direct link to the survey:

This survey is about attitudes towards gays and lesbians and same-sex marriage in general, across different demographic groups in the United States. The Huffington post is choosing to focus on a correlation between young adults' religious affiliation and their views on gays and lesbians. I think this is only part of the reason for the decline, I think it is a general cultural disconnect and lack of engagement with churches and younger people. I remember after I got into about junior age, the church didn't really seem to know what to do with us. Even more so the case in high school. Any attempts they made to be "modern" and "relevant" always seem pathetic- too little too late.

This makes for very interesting reading. There's a lot of information there -- not a lot of it really surprising on the religious side of things.
